2016 NEMO Users Meeting

The 2016 NEMO Users meeting will be held on June 22 and 23, 2016 in Lecce (Italy).

The meeting will cover a wide range of NEMO applications, as oceanographic and climate research, operational ocean forecasts and seasonal weather forecasts. It will include a variety of topics, from global to regional modelling on both short and long time scales, modelling of biogeochemistry and ice, data assimilation within NEMO.

The agenda will include the following sessions:

  • NEMO present and future
  • Improving physical processes
  • Biogeochemistry
  • High resolution ocean (global and regional domains)
  • Sea ice modelling
  • Operational applications

A more detailed agenda will be available in the near future.

The agenda is now available. See pdf attached attachment:'Agenda_NEMO_Users_Meeting_20June.pdf' .

Registration is now CLOSED
